What is wrought iron and why is it used in ornamental iron works?
Currently, the only way to get true wrought iron is to import it from Europe or find an old bridge, wagon wheel axle, or other antique item. The scarcity of the metal is unfortunate for the ornamental iron industry because wrought iron is an ideal metal to work with.
Wrought iron is corrosion resistant, handles stress well, and can accept a thicker finish.
Rather than having the brittle characteristic of modern steels, true wrought iron is like bread dough or candy taffy.
The reason behind the metal's unusual properties is the addition of iron silicate. This glasslike slag is interwoven in the iron and gives the metal its "dough-like" form.
In a single square inch there may be a quarter of a million or more of these little slag fibers. By their very nature, the fibers help the metal do a better job of absorbing stress.
We fabricate the designs in our shop or on site depending on your needs. These designs include ornamental:
